It has therefore established a special service, similar to that found in all UK universities, designed to help students with non-academic issues, problems and concerns. The Student Support Service provides support to students, such as health care, advice on study related issues and other personal issues, as well as accommodation.The objective of the service is to help you to adapt to the different learning environment and the pressures it may bring. In particular it exists to help international students to adapt to the cultural environment and to provide support on visa applications, registration, medical insurance, etc.
